Sudden Death of 61-Year-Old Woman

Acting Commissioner of Police, Na’imah Astwood– “Around 10:55am Thursday, 16th May 2024, the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) received a 911 call regarding a suspected mental health emergency in the Wellington Slip Road, St. George’s area.

BPS officers were promptly dispatched to that location. Shortly after arriving and interacting with a 61-year-old local woman, she became distressed and after that, unresponsive.

The attending officers immediately rendered first aid.

Emergency medical technicians then arrived and the woman was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, with lifesaving efforts in progress.

Sadly, she was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

In view of the fact the BPS engaged with the local woman just prior to her death, the BPS has implemented our Post Incident Management procedures and notified the Police Complaints Authority.

Additionally, a BPS Family Liaison Officer has been assigned and a full investigation into this matter is currently underway, with relevant updates to be provided in due course.”
